Beschreibung

Shortly before her death early last year, Angela Carter was preparing a volume of short stories. Now Chatto is publishing this collection, one which does full justice to the glory of her imagination and the range of her talent. It is divided into distinct parts. The first comprises a group of stories inspired by America: Lizzie Borden visits a circus; a John Ford Western is spiced with the story of 'TIS PITY SHE'S A WHORE' and there is a wonderful Gothic extravaganza set in Hollywood. The second section - OLD WORLD WONDERS - draws on fairy tales (Cinderella), on the story of Mary Magdalene, on the folklore of pantomime, on ALICE IN WONDERLAND, an on medieval legend. These stories represent Angela Carter at her most acrobatic and dazzling: erudite, witty, sexy and enthralling. A book to delight her many, many fans.

"Hybrids of tale and critical essay, a reminder that Carter was also one of the finest discursive essayists."

Angela Carter

"Her sportive side is well represented... Carter loved those pantomime transformations she saw as capsizing fixed identity and hidebound morality. It seems apt that these stories, just as they join continents, should mingle styles and genres with promiscuous abandon." Observer "Hybrids of tale and critical essay, a reminder that Carter was also one of the finest discursive essayists." Scotsman
